1 Million Cups NE Tarrant County
Northeast Tarrant County is now part of the national program to engage, educate and connect local entrepreneurs. Founded by the Kauffman Foundation, 1 Million Cups is based on the notion that entrepreneurs network and discover solutions over one million cups of coffee.
These free and weekly nationwide gatherings help build startup communities on a grassroots level. Each week, two early-stage business startups present their companies to an audience of community based mentors, advisers and fellow entrepreneurs. Each presentation lasts for six minutes, followed by a 20-minute Q&A session between the presenter and the audience.
The audience also learns a great deal from the presentations. Whether through passively listening or deeply engaging with the entrepreneurs, there is much to learn every week from these dynamic and diverse communities.
